Merry Christmas!

Since my bowel op things have started to gradually get better. My feed is increasing slowly and I am having less dirty nappies, although my bottom is still very sore!!!!!

 I have been trialling a posh new portable ventilator and so far it has suited me well which is good news in the long run. The next step is to get used to a dry circuit which will actually allow me to move more easily around my bed space and hopefully eventually give me the chance to leave the ward and go on little trips outside (although it was snowing today so I don*t fancy that too much at the moment!!). ?!!

 Last week I met Southampton FC, but silly Mummy didn*t really know who any of the players were so I couldn*t ask for their autographs. I was also asked to pose for the new PICU brochure, and as posing is one of my favourite hobbies, I think I did rather a good job. My bed is looking very festive and Mummy keeps making me wear silly Christmas costumes, as if I didn*t have enough problems already! Apparently Father Christmas comes to visit the hospital so I must write my list and remember to put my stocking up.

Hope I*ve beeen a good boy (Mummy and Daddy think I have!)................................................................, wonder how he gets in without a chimney?!!


















































bowel back

sorry i*ve not updated my blog for a while i*ve been mega busy smiling, playing and reaching out as I have lots of catching up to do!

My bowel operation went as well as it could have. I had to have half of it removed but the other half is good quality and should allow me to have a curry when i*m older, although my botty is very sore already because its not been used for so long.

I*m allowed to start trying fruit puree, but I can*t swallow very well so it might take time to actually eat anything properly, but its better than being on TPN and hopefully i*ll be able to try more exciting food soon.

More pix when I have time to upload them.

The next step is to get me off this ventilator and back on the portable NIPPY so I can go home again.
